Anak Bulan Di Kampung Wa' Hassan
Directed by Noor Effendy Ibrahim
Performed by Adib Kosnan
This monodrama tells the story of Kampung Wa’ Hassan, the last Malay kampung (village) to fall victim to Singapore's efforts at modernisation. Far from a nostalgic trip down memory lane to a romanticised Malay kampung, this is a journey of discovery of the true worth of a village, filled with real-life characters in all their rawness, and the true loss in the dispossession of it.
Directed By Mohd Fared Jainal
Performed by Siti Hajar Abdul Gani & Nurfarhana M Noor
Two women – one young, the other less so - share a house, a kitchen, a pot, and a husband. They talk, discovering frustrations and claustrophobia in a space each expected to own completely. Madu Dua is a tale of a polygamous marriage which dispenses altogether the male narrative in heady bouts of spite and verve, pain and regret. It explores the discomforted space in the negotiation of religion and the self and exposes the complexity of the female (Malay/Muslim) psyche.
Performed in: Malay with English surtitles
Estimated Duration: 1.5 hours, with intermission
